Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knitting in the round
  • cast on, cast off / bind off
  • knit, purl, increase, decrease
  • basic lace skills (yarn overs and decreases)
  • Basic cables (cables can be worked without a cable needle if you like)

Pattern Description:

A pretty lace and cabled cowl made in supersoft, extra fine merino. Great stitch definition and will look fabulous with your Winter coat.

Worked in the round, from the bottom up, the lace pattern is every other row, so you can have a resting knit row in between. The cabling can be done easily without a cable needle, or with one if you prefer. The pattern includes stitch counts for the shorter version, shown in images, or the longer version. It's easily adjusted by adding more stitches.

A quick knit, this would be an ideal gift and has a matching hat.
